I am looking for a way to make a jump list for the windows task bar for application shortcuts. Kinda like the quick launch toolbar but with the jump list look. I tried to make my own 'toolbar' but that does what the quick launch bar did before.

Try this program: Jump List Launcher . It lets you create your own list of shortcuts to programs or whatnot, and is a true jumplist in both appearance and functionality.

Thanks gave you the accepted answer since yours uses the actual jump list system. – MrStatic May 30 '10 at 21:11

I haven't gotten around to trying it yet, but a while ago I found a program that I think does what you want: 7stacks. (It doesn't look like a jump list though; it is glass instead.)

Your answer was what I was looking for but had to award it to eidylon since his uses the actual jump list tech. +1 tho – MrStatic May 30 '10 at 21:12

Well, if you want to do this as an application than I would suggest getting a copy of Microsoft Visual C++ and writing a program that implements ICustomDestinationList.

ICustomDestinationList Interface

Exposes methods that allow an application to provide a custom Jump List, including destinations and tasks, for display in the taskbar.
